Folder Menus

No one reads release notes, so new features are often overlooked. Until recently, none of my skins has offered a menu of the folders and subfolders in an album. Over the last couple of releases, I have added that option, and refined it. It is not selected by default, because I know how much users hate surprises. ;)

In Jupiter, Mercury, Neptune, Opus 16, and Neptune, you can now opt for a folder menu. A quick demo:

Links to an external homepage and to an info page can be included on the folder menu, or they can have regular title bar icons, or both. In this demo, they are present only on the folder menu.

This option is not available in Triton, since it doesn't support folders, or in Venus, in which all folder content appears on a single index page with folder "sections." I have not added it to Atom in the interests of keeping that skin relatively simple.

Where the choices are - they're in pretty much the same place in each skin:

Cool feature. After playing with it a little, I believe including it on a couple of albums with multiple nested folders will improve navigation considerably.

I refer to this as Wonkavator Navigation™.
